Weekend Recipes: Asian Inspired Flat Iron Steak

Asian Steak2

If you’re a steak fan this is definitely a recipe you will enjoy. The Asian Zing sauce gives it a zangy and full flavor that brings life to the meat. While not the most nutritional, it can be used as a mild cheat meal for the week.

What You Need

  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 pounds flat iron steak
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • Asian Zing Sauce

How To Make It

Stir soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, green onions, garlic, and olive oil together in a bowl; pour into a resealable bag. Add the steak, coat with the marinade and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator, 3 to 4 hours. Remove steak from marinade and discard remaining juice. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat; cook steak just until outside is browned and seared, about 1 minute per side. Continue to cook until desired doneness, about 5 additional minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C). Remove skillet from heat and allow steak to rest before cutting, 3 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle sesame seeds over steak. Then add Asian Zing sauce over steak before enjoying. It takes 10-15 minutes to prepare and approximately 15 minutes to cook. However, remember to take into account the refrigeration time.
